How far do we go to connect with our culture? Can we "sell" the Gospel
like the world sells soft drinks? Where are the boundaries? The church today is
walking a tightrope. On the one hand, we need to proclaim, and, perhaps more importantly,
live the Gospel in such a way that it connects with both seekers and younger people
looking for community and authenticity. Yet at what point does this fall into "feel
good" ministry at the expense of biblical truth? These are issues that God's people
are now beginning to wrestle with. Elmer Towns and Edward Stetzer provide an intergenerational
perspective that sheds biblical light on some tough challenges facing the church.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Perimeters of Light

Discerning Reader

Hence the authors are referring to the evangelical church as it struggles to find its identity in our newly postmodern society (as it emerges from modernism into postmodernism), and are not referring to the subset of this, popularly known as the Emerging (or Emergent) Church.
